Good Reading, Great Story
This story has been way down on my 'bucket list' for 40 years, but never rising up with any urgency. So I am grateful and delighted to discover this well done reading of the Brothers Karamazov which has opened up the complexity and humanness of this novel to me. It reminds me of reading Dr. Zhivago years ago, both books breakthrough to grab the reader no matter what country you come from. And what characters! The large download count is a clue to how good this reading is, just surprised that no one has bothered to come back and review it. (I'm only 1/4 of the way into the book so maybe the readers are not as good further on, I promise to come back and report).
